Yup, I am an existing Vodafone customer (using a Nokia not a BB) and I'm going to try and get my hands on a Storm as soon as they are released.
Spoke to Vodafone UK business customer service yesterday and they didn't have them on the system so could not give me a price, the person I spoke to was aware of the Storm though and said to call again next week when they would hopefully be able to quote for packages and upgrades.
Storm looks perfect for me, the lack of WiFi is a bummer but I think with an unlimited Voda data package I will be able to get over it. IMHO the lack of WiFi is clearly in part due to the influence of the operators/carriers. If the Euro version (the 9500) does not have all the radio the US (9530) version has, there would have been room to add WiFi to the Euro version I'm sure. It's all about protecting revenue by getting people to buy data packages.
